    New season fashion wishlist!

    The shops are heaving with delicious new autumn/winter collections so shall we go shopping? (Enablers? Us?) Read on for this season's key pieces, as currently coveted by the Muddy HQ gang. Credit cards ready!

  • Soft and slinky

    We may live in the sticks but, just like Joan Jett, we love rock’n’roll here at Muddy – hell yeah! And fashion brands don’t come much more rock’n’roll than cult scarf brand Rockins.

  • Unisex Scents

    Smells likes in-between spirit? Muddy HQ is a-waft with the coolest new unisex scents

  • Super sweaters

But one high profile, supercool lady who honestly does love the blogaroo is Kim Winser, above, owner of the brilliant designer Winser London brand and ex head honcho at Pringle, Aquascutum and Agent Provocateur. Winser London, […]

Case in point, Raunchy Rosie! If you ever frequent Northampton town, and more recently, The Cultural Quarter, you’ll have spied Rosie – the […]
